New flights to Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore this year

Region becoming more connected and competitive

The next time the Mariners play in Japan, it will be a little easier to catch the game. Japan Airlines is set to begin nonstop service between Seattle and Tokyo on March 31.

The very next day, Cathay Pacific will debut new nonstop service to Hong Kong.

Singapore Airlines is poised to add its nonstop Singapore on September 3.

The Port of Seattle has seen significant growth in the number of international airlines desiring gates at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. These three announcements add to the seven new international airlines that began service at Sea-Tac from 2017 to 2018.

Sea-Tac’s competitiveness for lucrative international routes will be enhanced by the new International Arrivals Facility slated to come online in 2020.

One of the goals of Amazing Place, the regional economic strategy, is to improve on the region’s ability to compete globally. One of the strategies to realize that goal is to sustain and grow commercial air travel connections domestically and globally. Commercial aviation is a cornerstone of the region’s economy.

Sea-Tac is preparing for the future with its Sustainable Airport Master Plan and the region has begun a larger long-term look at central Puget Sound airport capacity and operations through the Regional Aviation Baseline Study.
